The emergency calls reveal just how terrified eye witnesses were, and how shaken up what they had seen had made them.
Witnesses told 911 operators that there was a violent attack taking place, their voices visibly urgent and shaken; they described that an attacker was going to kill another man.
However, none of the emergency calls mentioned the extent of the injuries being inflicted on 65-year-old victim, who has since been confirmed as homeless man, Ronald Poppo.
Eye-witnesses described seeing two men fighting under the Miami Causeway near the Miami Herald newspaper's offices, but did not mention how Poppo's face was being ripped off and eaten by psychotic zombie attacker Rudy Eugene.
A female bus driver urgently demands the 911 dispatcher to send help, saying, "He's going to kill that man, I promise you."
She said, "Listen, there is a naked man on the MacArthur Causeway. He is beating another man to a pulp - like on top of the man, beating him, the man is bleeding."
Another caller described how two "bums" were "going at it" nearly knocking over passing cyclists: "These two bums were going at it with each other, taking up the whole lane. I think they were fighting or something."
Yet another confirmed police would have no problem finding the crazed attacker as he had thrown his clothes in the road and was now completely naked. "You can't miss him. He's naked," the man said.
Footage of the attack shows that homeless man Poppo was sleeping under the highway when naked Eugene, 31, pounced on him and started to eat his face. He then stripped off Poppo's bottom clothes, straddled him and continued with his attack.
Although a cop came by and told him to stop, Eugene simply growled at him with pieces of flesh in his mouth and continued to savage Poppo.
It is believed that Rudy was high on bath salts leading to his psychotic behavior. But his girlfriend says he was a very sweet guy and believes there must have been a voodoo curse on him that drove him to commit such a heinous attack on another human being.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer of Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery told Radar Online: "It could easily cost $100,000 to $200,000 for the reconstructive surgeries that he will need to get his face back. It will require an ophthalmologist, a cranial facial surgeon, a micros-surgeon and plastic surgeons. It is like something ripped from a TV plot - it would be like the Manhattan project to rebuild him."
Salzhauer told Radar that one of his eyes seem to be gone and that the most challenging part of the facial reconstruction will be his nose which had been completely bitten off.
